The film is included in our program to illustrate the work of Helen Gibson, a star of Silent Hall of Fame.
1915-1917 Helen Gibson starred in a serial by the name of "The Hazards of
Helen". She is considered the first professional stunt woman.
"Winning the Franchise" is a short action drama. Helen's father is the
President of a railroad company competing for a very lucrative
government contract. A rival company organizes a sabotage and Helen is
the only one who can save the day.

stars, which have made a major contribution to the industry and the
world but do not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

masterpieces that have been kept in hidden vaults for far too long. Our

85 years and is not available anywhere else.

legacy of silent movie stars with your tax deductible contribution.
